Probiotics for Precision Nutrtion

DID YOU KNOW that glutathione and its precursor N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) are considered iron chaperones?

The Science study bolsters the idea that glutathione is a "chaperone" for iron, which is required for virtually all functions within a cell. But iron is also highly oxidative. Without glutathione to keep it in line, it initiates oxidative stress in cells, causing damage. Maintaining the glutathione-to-iron ratio is very important, because if you have too little glutathione, then iron becomes very reactive.

How can you tell if you need NAC or glutathione? The blood marker GGT (part of our suggested blood work list) and the gene SLC25A39 (screen for in our Pure Genomics panel) are great.
